Dollywood announcement

New details have been revealed of the water and snow park that Dollywood plans to build in Nashville, with the attraction set to be split into two main areas.

The Tennessean reports that a 27-acre area will be covered by the water park, with a smaller area dedicated to snow attractions. As previously reported, a further 35 acre area will be reserved for future developments.

According to the report, the water park will feature a number of slides and a lazy river, while the snow park will be limited to two slides initially. Fake snow will be used to keep the snow park operational during periods of milder weather.

Dollywood has partnered with Gaylord Entertainment Co, which owns the nearby Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center, to fund the project. The first phase of construction is expected to cost $50 million, and will begin later this year or in early 2013.
